You can also refine the searches by playing with some of the other fields. For example, adding &node=157305011 gives mysteries, 158566011 is romance, 157325011 is non-fiction, etc. Those are the only three I know right now...I'm sure other folks know other nodes, like sci-fi...

You can also search, for example, for the classics, which mostly have (Enriched Classics) in the title by adding &title=classics to the search.

So a little creativity can help knock down the hundreds of titles to something manageable.
&node= didn't work for me, or at least it didn't narrow the list down. However, it did cause the sidebar to show a list of categories for drilling down into. To simplify things for everyone else:
It'll also let you drill down into sub-categories after you follow any of the above links.

Too bad almost every book is in almost every category.

In the time it takes to read one book I accumulate 25 more. I'm drowning in ebooks. To make matters worse, I also record TV shows faster than I can watch, so every day I fall farther behind on those too.

That is really bizarre, because it definitely works for me. If I take @keithdt's link from the first post (the general one, not the non-fiction one), and add &node=157305011 at the end, it goes from showing me more than 2,000 S&S titles (you can see this up in the upper left corner of the page) to 399 titles, and it adds the category "Kindle eBooks : Mystery, Thriller & Suspense" in burnt orange text. See the attached screenshots of before and after, with URL, and search results in upper left-ish.

Now, it's still true that, as @j.p.s says up above, the assignment of books to genres can sometimes be sort of off, but at least it can be a bit of help when staring at a few thousand search results ...

Odd that it's not working for you - and funny that it doesn't cause the sidebar to show up for me. But, anyway, glad it somehow helped you sort!
